ext Texttexttexttexttexttexttexttexttextt But not all infographics work Sometimes theyre a complete mess Poll! Out of the infographics youve seen, what percentage were actually effective? Not all infographics are created alike! What?!

So when should you use an infographic? To infographic or NOT to infographic? Tie together related data Simplify large amounts of content Tell a story thats best told through data

Consider using an infographic if you need to Use it just because its shiny & new Need to tell a linear narrative story Attempt to link data that actually isnt connected Youre better off using something else if you need to Discussion What topics from your

own work might make good infographics? Where do people tend to go wrong when they make infographics? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?

Unclear point But what does it mean?! Data & information is poorly displayed Well, that doesnt tell me anything! Confusing (or just plain ugly) graphic design Ahhh! My eyes! Discussion When youve seen weak

infographics, what stuck out as a reason why? Discussion How about great infographics? What about them stuck out as particularly effective? So what does a GOOD infographic Well-designed Clear narrative have? Logical and point How much pie have I eaten so a

history of pie far? consumption up to this point of time informatio n Pie I have eaten Pie I have not eaten graphics Thats some good looking pie!
